…and millennium erection is exposed

Inevitably, the Design Council debate touched upon the Greenwich Millennium dome. “It is called the New Millennium Experience Company, and boy you should experience it from where I’m sitting,” said its chief executive, Jennie Page, present at the debate. “Unlike the Channel Tunnel and the British Library, it will not be delivered late,” she added.

Dissatisfied, one audience member later complained that the giant dome essentially represents “a male society celebrating the millennium with an erection”.

Since the unexpected outburst, Page and colleagues are understood to be exercising special care when choosing a seat from which to savour the domes’ many splendours.
